I’m gearing up for a trip to Los Angeles and Anaheim and figured I would share what beauty essentials I’m bringing with me! I don’t like packing too many makeup items so I love it when palettes come with face products as well as eye shadows so I have to pack less things. I’m packing the new Lorac Pro to Go Eye/Cheek palette for neutral looks – it also has two blushes and a bronzer, the Tarte Aqualillies palette since all the products are waterproof and will come in handy at theme parks, and the Glamour Eyes by Michelle Phan for Lancôme for a night look in case my boyfriend wants to take me out to dinner :). This vacation I also decided to be a little adventurous and bring some body bronzers with me – the Tarte Maracuja Rainforest Glow Instant Matte Waterproof Body Perfector (washable) and the Lorac TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer (gradual tanner) – you have to have tan skin if you’re going to LA! I decided to bring waterproof eye and face primers (I brought some non-waterproof ones too) from Tarte to ensure my makeup will stay on no matter how many times I get on Jurassic Park or Splash Mountain! Sticking to the waterproof theme I’m also bringing a turquoise waterproof eyeliner from Tarte for a nice summery pop of color. I love having a moisturizer that has SPF in it like the one I have from Cetaphil so that way I don’t have to apply sunscreen separately. For lips I always bring a nude color, a rose color, and a bold color. Lets not forget a lash curler, mascara, tweezers, setting powder, travel-sized perfume, and a highlighter! To make sure my makeup stays on all day I’m bringing the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. Last but not least I have to bring my brushes!
